These are the shoes Wendy Davis wore for her EPIC filibuster (Read the reviews)

Last edited Sat Jun 29, 2013, 10:43 AM - Edit history (1)

I tried to link to them in orange. I am not sure if it worked.

On edit: to let you know they were the red (some say pink) ones.

1. I laughed out loud

When I first began wearing these shoes I thought my reproductive rights were secure. Turns out, I couldn't have been more wrong.

2. The Republican caucus of the Texas legislature

is probably working on an amendment to the rules of filibuster for women to wear six-inch stiletto heels (it's about 'decorum,' yunno).

...are why I will always have faith in humanity. When we lose our sense of humor, we have lost.

So, yeah...everyone needs to read the reviews.

25. That one was my FAVORITE.

I can just see the person who wrote it dropping the mike and spreading their arms out and slowly backing away. BOOYAH. FREAKING LOVED THAT ONE.

Incidentally, I really want a pair of these shoes now. If they can withstand her filibuster, then by God they can withstand a 12 hour nursing shift. LOL.

11. Love these comments, especially this one:

At age 68, at the feet of Sen Wendy Davis, I found myself in awe of these shoes. The one day that I have worn them has rejuvenated the feeling that I own my personal uterus. I can feel the states of Texas, Virginia, Mississippi, Wisconsin, etc, slowly dropping out of my lady parts. These shoes make me feel lighter and more in control of my body. I highly recommend these shoes to the busybody men who play doctor in the governments of all states and in the federal government, as well. May all of these men wear these shoes with courage and experience the pleasures of their hands rather than imagining the little men fetuses pleasuring them.

18. This one is good:


1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy these shoes, June 26, 2013
By Tom Miller (MN USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Mizuno Women's Wave Rider 16 Running Shoe (Apparel)
Even though...

1) I am a man and these are clearly women's shoes
2) I have never gone through the experience of wearing them
3) These shoes are not designed for my feet; and
4) They are of a color I would never wear...

I feel somehow compelled to decide for the shoe's female target market whether or not they should own them.

Don't.

Thank you.

I like this line from one:

"I will put them on my feet when I need to run far. When I am tired, I will ask myself: WWWD?! Then I will keep running. "

"I tried on a pair at the local mall and suddenly Texas Republicans started telling me what to do with my genitals. They started explaining reproduction to me like I was a seventh grader. Unfortunately, being male, I had no way to shut the whole thing down. I'm so confused..."
and...

"These go perfectly with any back brace you may need after good old fashion filibusting for 9 hours (with 4 more to go). What's that? Your crappy mean spirited colleagues on the other side of the isle say it isn't fair? That's right ladies, this shoe is completely washable, so just shove it up their ass."

wide side of normal. But if they are cut narrowly, I would probably need a wide.

Do you like them?

45. I have a kind of a wide foot too.

The Mizunos that I have aren't cut narrowly. I also have a high arch and I pronate (I have a strange foot). I think the I have the model I have are the Inspires. I like them a lot. Of course now that I know they are most excellent at kicking Republican ass, I like them even more!

23. Great comments!

A best buy for brilliant, blonde barristers bravely burstin' bubba bubbles, bustin' bubba butt, and blisterin' beastly bubba brains beautifully!

...

These have the dual purpose of being able to withstand a 13 hour filibuster and serve as a rectal probe for the Governer's rear cavity during his special session. I personally inserted a tiny camera at the end so we can all see how full of feces Rick is in case you hadn't already discerned it from the aural examination.

...
Best one, I think:

"You keep lying, when you oughta be truthin'
and you keep losin' when you oughta not bet.
You keep samin' when you oughta be changin'.
Now what's right is right, but you ain't been right yet.

These shoes are made for filibustering, and that's just what they'll do
Test me again and these shoes they're gonna filibuster over you.

You keep playin' where you shouldn't be playin
and you keep thinkin' that you'll never get burnt.
Ha! I just found me a brand new box of matches yeah
and what I know you ain't HAD time to learn.

Are you ready boots...start filibustering..."

My wife owns a restaurant here in Texas, and she is on her feet 12-18 hours a day.

She swears by Dansko shoes. Since wearing them, no back pain, no fatigue. And they look nice, too!

We are thinking about sending Sen. Davis a pair...
